15 Lines Written on a Bathroom Floor

I dream of you dancing
In pastel gardens,
Wearing only your alabaster skin,
The furred particles of a flowering moon's pollen,
Tiny, warm, candid.

And you bend and sway in the
Skinny breeze.
The supple branch of a young willow, 
Little red tears in your eyes,
Glinting, stinging, fleeting.

And then you fall to the floor,
Shivering in your freshly expressed nudity,
And you weep and shrink into
A small fetus,
Amorphous, motionless, bloody.

-Manuel A. Hurtado
